As many as 24% (a quarter) of Americans started a side job this year More importantly, in 2020, due to the pandemic, new business has increased by 42%. Blogs, magazines, news sites, etc. are all talking about starting a side job because more people want to know how to turn a side job into a full-time job.

I have been a freelancer and creative entrepreneur since 2014, so working from home, finding clients, blogging, and using social media are no strangers to me. However, if you are new to this online space, you must take some key steps to turn the Side Hustle of selling crafts or making logos into a legitimate full-time business.

But before I give you advice, I just want to let you know that this is my personal experience and the experience I have taught to more than 25,000 writers. I do know that although there are other legal ways to turn your Side Hustle into your main performance, for the sake of this article, I will share what I know and what I have done.

1. Have a website

Your success online depends to a large extent on the credibility of your work and the proof of your identity All of these can be answered through your own website. Whether you are creating a service-based website like me or creating a blog (like me), opening up a space online will only help you work faster and faster.

What pages do you need on your website to help you with your side business?

you need to:

  • About my page
  • Store/Service Page
  • Blog
  • Hire me page/resource page

Depending on whether your side business is you or a product, there is a store/service page that shows what you offer

The Hire Me page is great for freelancers like me, but if you are doing affiliate marketing while doing a side job, the resource page is a good choice.

Optional pages include course pages, seminar pages, freebies pages, forum pages, or rewards you provide to increase your email list.

2. Start paying attention

Anything you do online is to serve others. This is the main reason why you start a side business—helping and serving others. What can you do to improve the lives of others? Did you write it? Your art skills? Your productivity application?

To be successful and earn income from your side business, you need to build a strong following. You don’t need a lot-you only need people who will enjoy your hustle and bustle.

You can use social media to increase followers, but realize that you don’t have these followers. Therefore, if Pinterest closes your account or you are locked by Facebook, you cannot rely on the audience you have built on that social media platform.

In either case, it’s still a good idea to share your strategy and provide free advice as a way to cultivate a strong following. This is what I do on Instagram through IGTV, Stories, and Reels.

3. Start the email list

If I didn’t have an email list of more than 20,000 subscribers, I wouldn’t be here today. With an open rate of about 35%, I am reaching thousands of writers and helping them in a more personalized way

Your email list is yours, unlike your social media followers, you can contact your subscribers as you like, and share them as you like. Remember, joining someone’s email list is a privilege.

As an entrepreneur, you have a responsibility to treat your subscribers like gold. Give them more than they want, help them 1:1, and tell them how great they are. This list of nurturing you will help sell your side business like magic.

4. Network

If you ask a successful entrepreneur the first thing that helps them become a full-time income machine, they might say an email list, or they might say that they pointed out the first question to the audience or they can be said to be very Below the big IG.

But, do you know what they won’t say? networking. For 78% of startups, the network is a vital component and the only factor that helps them succeed.

Moreover, this is my #1 way to get regular performances, opportunities, clients, clients, etc.

Start networking by following other entrepreneurs, brands, and freelancers. Show others in your content, sign up for their newsletter, and get their attention. Over time, you can reach out and establish contacts with them in a friendly and collaborative manner.

5. Sell your knowledge or skills

If your Side Hustle does not sell your knowledge or skills, you will not succeed. Just because I am a copywriter in the B2B digital marketing space, I cannot create a complete course on direct response copywriting. You must study what you know in-depth to make a great side business idea In addition, there is a strong promotion strategy that can make your products/services appear in front of your ideal customers and potential customers. Email funnels, sales page writing, lead generation strategies, and basic social media marketing will enable you to reach your goals One of my students, Amanda, is a registered nurse and freelancer. She decided to sell her resume skills to nurses, and she never looked back. On her “About” page, she shared her statistics:

6. Cooperation

I have already mentioned collaboration, but I hope you will focus on this as the main way to develop a Side Hustle For many years, I have been at the summit—Kate Doster’s three summits are the most recent—to speak on podcasts and continue to publish guest articles. A recent HARO (Help a Reporter Out) promotion asked me to write an article instead of contributing an article. I think this is a great opportunity for collaboration because she has a high DA and is a micro-influencer. I can write an 800–1000 word blog post in 30 minutes Collaboration doesn’t have to be difficult; find a podcast in your niche industry and promote yourself or join HARO!

7. Meet people in your space

When you build a network, you will begin to understand the people in your space. From influencers to bloggers to entrepreneurs and other freelancers, find them and connect with them I bet that most successful entrepreneurs do not do this on their own. They accept guidance, guidance, or become friends with others in their field. This is how I became friends with Julia McCoy, an outstanding content marketer, and ambitious woman When you interact with successful people, you will succeed through penetration! A friendly chat with Julia opened the door for more course ideas, book ideas, publishing ideas, etc.
